First Republic really puts the corporate spin on boutique banking in a great way.

Little focus on innovation or keeping up with industry standards.
Relationship managers can be very egocentric in interactions with line staff.

Work to be more inclusive with all employees and across all departments.

    I worked at First Republic (CA) full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Excellent exec. management, compensation plan is generous, smart people, flat management, strong sales and service culture.

    Cons

    The management is so flat that top producers are promoted to management jobs who have no training or insight on how to motivate employees. Can't really tell the truth to anyone about observations since no one really wants to hear it - tend to react with fear and panic which is pushed down. Management assumes comp. plan is the only thing that keeps people happy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in experienced managers who are rewarded for growth of the area they manage as opposed to being focused on their own business.
